YEAR OF METAL titletygers of pan tang logoThis has to be one of the coolest names for a band ever. If I didn’t already know that Tygers Of Pan Tang was a band name, I would have assumed it was the title of a Kung Fu exploitation movie from the 1970s.

Anyway, Tygers Of Pan Tang is another NWOBHM band that many an old Metal-Head recalls fondly, with several other bands listing them as influences. But, unlike some of the other bands listed, instead of having only a small handful of releases, Tygers Of Pan Tang have been rather prolific, releasing six studio albums between their initial run in 1980 thru 1987. That’s not counting the three compilation albums and one live album released in that period.
